David Mitchell and Robert Webb Return to BBC America with All New U.S. Premiere Seasons of Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look
Both series return Wednesday, April 7 on the cable channel.

[via press release from BBC America]


BAFTA and British Comedy Award-winning duo, David Mitchell and Robert Webb are back on BBC AMERICA in April with all new U.S. premiere seasons of their cult hit shows. Peep Show Season 3 and 4 premieres Wednesday, April 7, 2010, 9:00p.m. ET/PT, That Mitchell and Webb Look Season 3 premieres Wednesday, April 7, 2010, 9:30p.m. ET/PT. On Wednesday, April 28, 2010, both shows will move back an hour to 10:00p.m. ET/PT and 10:30p.m. ET/PT.

The Guardian called Peep Show "the best comedy of the decade" while The Observer said "Peep Show remains as brilliantly twisted as ever" and superstar Ricky Gervais counts it among his favorite shows of all time. The new U.S. premiere seasons continue to follow the domestic adventures of Mark (David Mitchell) and Jeremy (Robert Webb), two late-twenty something roommates living in London. As ever, viewers are party to Mark and Jeremy's innermost thoughts as the dysfunctional duo try in vain to find their place in modern culture, to grow up and maybe even find love and fulfillment.

Mark finally manages to start going out with Sophie (Olivia Colman), until � heartbreakingly � she is relocated to Bristol. While he struggles to keep their long-distance relationship going via attempted phone sex, Jeremy tries to get over his disastrous marriage to American beauty Nancy by embarking on a series of unwise relationships including his neighbor and Mark's sister, Toni (Elizabeth Marmur). Other high jinks ensue throughout the seasons as Mark and Jeremy are forced to deal with intimidating plumbers, mental illness, muggers and the ups, but mostly downs, of casual drug use � in fact all the usual problems of everyday life.

That Mitchell and Webb Look crackles with more of David and Rob's brainy but eccentric comedy, and returns with a number of well loved characters and sketches including Sir Digby Chicken Caesar, Ginger and the Lazy Writers. Described as "easily the funniest sketch series around" (Daily Telegraph), this new season also brings a slew of new characters as well as a new regular feature called The Quiz Broadcast, a game show in the wake of "The Event" � a global catastrophe that has destroyed society as we know it. The last few surviving humans compete for top prizes, such as fuel and food.

A wealth of inventive new one-off sketches include the mysterious futuristic cult of Vectron � a religion that began as the result of a misunderstanding, an exciting new system for finding books on shelves called the Jan Hankl's Flank Pat�, and a couple who definitely aren't swingers and are very keen to let everyone know.

BBC AMERICA brings audiences a new generation of award-winning television featuring news with a uniquely global perspective, provocative dramas, razor-sharp comedies, life-changing makeovers and a whole new world of nonfiction. BBC AMERICA pushes the boundaries to deliver high quality, highly addictive and eminently watchable programming to viewers who demand more. It is available on digital cable and satellite TV in more than 67 million homes.


Actors, writers and comedians David Mitchell and Robert Webb met at Cambridge University, and soon wrote for shows including the comedy Armstrong and Miller, Big Train featuring Simon Pegg and Catherine Tate and the long running Dead Ringers. They've now successfully shot seven seasons of Peep Show and three seasons of That Mitchell and Webb Look.
